We went to this place based on reviews, and the good was really good. Mostly fried and grilled seafood. We had grilled and fried shrimp, and grilled grouper. No complaints about any of the food. Don't go thinking this is a regular restaurant though. It is more like a shack on the water. You go to a counter and order,... More

This is a hole in the wall place. But a very good place to eat great atmosphere. Everyone was nice. We will be back. You must read the story about them.

This place is literally hidden. You will have to ask a local for good directions. This place is very good and it is on the water, which makes it more fun.

My husband and I went to Dewey Destin's on September 11. We went there based on recommendations from other people. Big mistake unfortunately. I ordered the Grouper Destin (grouper smothered with lump crab, lemon juice and special seasoning) with the red potato and corn side - with a salad to start. The salad never came. The waitress (Rachel) brought the... More

The large shrimp are lightly battered. The grilled shrimp basket is also very good. It comes with 10 large shrimp, boiled potatoes, corn and cole... More

Went to Dewey's yesterday, and it lived up to our expectations ! $$$+ as seems to be for all good sit down seafood places in area. The place exudes original Destin, and has a good selection of fried, steamed, or grilled seafood choices. My wife and I had different dishes, and both were very good. My Captain's dish gave us...
